Thoughts on Today’s Paper Doll
I usually describe these dresses as cocktail dresses, but I don’t think many people do cocktails anymore? I don’t, but then I don’t really drink. So, I’m not 100% sure that description still makes sense to anyone but me. As a result, I decided to just go with the description “party dress” and figured that would work for now. It’s not really a formal gown, but it’s fun and maybe a date-night option? For people with more formal lives than mine, I suppose.

My paper dolls all live much fancier lives than I do.

Inspiration for Today’s Paper Doll
I wanted to do a series of paper dolls with party dresses for the blog. I also realized it had been a long time since Sapphire got any love, so it was easy to combine the two instincts to this paper doll set of Sapphire and her cocktail dress.

A big thank you to my Patreon supporters who are amazing and awesome.

Also, cocktail dresses. Is that a term anyone uses anymore? Am I just insanely old fashioned? I can live with it if the answer is, Yes, but I am curious.

  1. I think the term ‘cocktail dress’ is used less commonly than it used to be, but I’m pretty sure everyone knows what it means when you say it. A search definitely turns up exactly what I mean when I say cocktail dress. Lots of them! 🙂 And this one is adorable!
    Paper dolls have fancier lives than I’ve ever had, too. I think that’s one of their purposes, to give us the fancy we don’t necessarily want for real. At least that’s how I see it. 🙂 Thank you for another great outfit!

  2. I really love that paper doll. Her shoes are adorable and hairstyle is so cute. I like it
    that your paper dolls have “so many lives”, once time she can be astronaut, classical girl, princess or historical person. I love your paper doll, but the most Jewels and Gemstones! 🙂 🙂 🙂
